Ms. Ellison's Literacy Support-Read 180 Class

Posted: October 3, 2011

I would like to welcome both the parents and children who are in the Reading Recovery Program. Welcome to All!! I am happy to be given this opportunity to work with both the children and parents as well as we work through the Reading Recovery Program.As you know, this is a 20 week program dedicated to assisting and helping children grasp and strengthen their reading and writing skills. There is an intensive amount of work to be covered within 20 weeks, so it is important that we try to maintain the full amount of weeks for each child. Your child will be learning strategizing skills to improve and strengthen their reading and writing. We will be working from what your child knows and from there, strengthening every skill they already have. Within the next few weeks, your child will begin bringing homework home from the Reading Recovery Program. Please have your child complete the assigned homework as this will be designed with every effort to improve and encourage reading strengths in your child! I will keep parents notified through my page of homework assignments or any other important things that will need to be posted. Welalin, Thank You, Merci!!

When your child is ready to end the series of lessons, the following strengths should be controlled:Directional Movement-This includes directional movement in both Reading and Writing (Left to Right, Top to Bottom, Return Sweeps).One to One Matching-Controlled One to One Match of Spoken to Written Words (and sequence of sounds in words) for checking purposes.Strategic Activities-Demonstrates a flexible control of strategic activity on new instructional texts at higher levels of difficulty. Child will try to solve new words and language structures in new texts.Self-Monitoring-Child checks his/her own reading (unprompted-on own).Cross-Checking-Child notices own discrepancies in his own responses by cross-checking one kind of information (ie.visual) with a different kind of information (ie.meaning). Uses of Multiple Sources of Information-Checks self-corrections by combining meaning, structure, letter-sound cues and a sense of how words ore spelled (tries to achieve a match across all information).Self-Correction-Effective Self-Correction follows from using self-monitoring, searching for solutions in flexible ways, and cross-checking information. Even at unsuccessful attempts however, child is aware that these activities can be helpful.
